Good enough...
I decided to buy these to get more protection than regular jeans. My buddy went down with jeans and it ripped like paper (he's okay).

The fit is true to its size. I wear a 32 on regular jeans and I bought a 32 and it perfect on the waist.

The negatives: It says the denim is 12oz but it feels more like 10oz. Also, the denim is not washed so the color comes off even making your hands blue if you rub it a few times. The stretch in the pants make it more comfortable to wear but I think it compromises the safety factor as I would think it will rip more easily. I wish there was Kevlar down the side of the pants too. The knee pads are thick enough but when you sit on the bike it rises up and turns to the inside of your legs leaving the outside of your legs unprotected. But it will probably provide more protection than not having any. You can adjust the pad down just about 1/2 an inch... not really much of difference.

The hip pad it's really just a thin pad that will probably help just a bit on the impact. But it's comfortable and gives you a little more peace of mind. The Kevlar looks to be well made.

Overall, I'm happy with the pants and it's better than regular jeans but if you're looking for true protection, I would recommend leather.

Here's some pictures of the inside of the pants.

Great riding jeans for the style inclined rider
One thing I love about these jeans is that I could throw them on, ride my bike downtown, get off the bike and look like I'm wearing a pair of regular jeans with perhaps a conversation starter pair of knee pads. They look great (I'm a thin framed guy) and I figure if I'm wearing them and forget I am, then they're a good pair. Tons of compliments on how well they fit me and with the added protection I feel free to ride naturally. Love these jeans and I haven't bought some straight casual jeans because these looks and feel so good on.

Great jeans!
First, the fit is dead-on: if you wear 36" khakis or jeans, order 36" Alpinestars. The inseam is plenty long for me, and I'm 6'4". The knee armor isn't so much armor as it is a thick pad, but it's very comfortable and apparently CE-certified. The hip pads are similar but don't offer the same protection, IMHO; these hip pads are just to lessen the impact if you tumble. The denim fabric is darker than I'd imagined, but that's okay. They look like "dress jeans." The stitching is very good. Everything about the construction of these Kevlar lined jeans looks great. If I wanted absolute protection, I'd be wearing a full leather racing suit, but I don't want to do that when it's 105° with 99% humidity. So these jeans are a compromise, but I have no doubts they will offer far more protection that regular denim jeans if I ever go down at speed.

The best lookin jeans in the market
First off, its a bit pricey compared to 'icon' brand. ICON jeans normally have very long inseam so unless your a very tall person then it will work for you. Standing 5'9" waist size 30 fits perfectly, inseam are right on, no need to hem. This jeans is true to size as you would wear a pair of regular levi's. It's a classic straight fit, not too baggy or tight just right for me. I bought this jeans because it comes with CE padding from knee then your hip area. (velcro style on hip) easily removable. I believe there is also a pair of alpinestars kevlar jeans that cost $169 but doesn't come with ce protective padding. For $199 I bought this jeans instead. comes with knee/hip protective padding. overall its a nice looking jeans.

Comfort and Protection... for a price
These riding jeans are easily my favorite pair. Longevity will be a question down the road, stitching seems OK but I have had more than a few pairs of other brand jeans in the past wear out quickly in the crotch.

These jeans have a nice bit of stretch to the fabric, allowing for me to very comfortably swing my leg over the bike without strong resistance. This also leads to all day comfort that I really appreciate. The color and wash is nice, and in a casual work environment fits right in for all day wear.

Protection... These jeans include hip and knee armor. The armor greatly exceeded my expectations in comfort and fit and well as performance. Other armored jeans I've used have pretty flimsy and questionable armor. The trade-off is all day wear-ability. You will have to remove the armor during your day, its too bulky. Removing and inserting armor pretty much requires you to take off your pants. Not convenient. As a result I typically only insert the full armor for a full day dedicated to riding.

Fit... I have a smaller waist and large quads/hamstrings. I'm not the archetype for modern skinny jeans, or even straight-leg jeans. These are a little snug, probably comparable to a regular fit in normal jeans. If you want a very relaxed fit go elsewhere. Again, the stretch in the soft outer material really helps.

Overall... If you can afford these jeans, want the option to insert armor for a serious day of riding, but also wear them on your commute and all day. These are a good choice.

Wanted Jeans
I was looking for a slim fit style jean. These look good and feel good. One looks good when on the bike.
However, they are still not what I am looking for. They look funny around the knees with the armor when wearing around.

The Hip padding is a joke. Use the Shorts with armor in them or wear Bond armor with real hip protection.

I will continue to wear these as I do my Armored sweat jacket together to give a relaxed look when off the bike. But I will continue to shop for a pair of jeans I like to ride in.

I ride a CBR500r, Honda NT700v, KLR650, and 98 Shadow VT1100c.

Great jean, Hip protection is a joke
After buying a pair of icon hooligan jeans and being disappointed i decided to upgrade to a pair of these.

overall the fit is less baggy (straight leg) and they fit well (i'm 6`0 205lbs and the 34" fit me well - no need to roll them up).

The knee protection is great but unlike the hooligans that feature a zip on the jean to easily take them out - you have to turn the pants inside out to get these out of the Astars. This is a draw back if you want to wear these anywhere and not look like a super moto hero once you get off your bike.

The kevlar protection seems to be of good quality (i have not been down on these so can't speak to how they hold up). The hip protection is a complete joke on this pair though. I do think revzilla accurately talks about this - but don't expect to get much from these hip inserts - i countered this by wearing a pair of dianese hard shorts with these jeans - i like this combo).

Overall great jean, not too hot - even in the hot summer months and they look great on or off the bike.

Great pair of riding Jeans.
Really good information on line and reviews of all the different riding jeans that are available. I picked the Alpinestars Resist because they were supposed to fit like 501's and offer good knee and hip protection. I am 5'11" 170 lbs. with about a 33-34" waist when ordering Levis. So I ordered the 34" and they arrived really fast. But they were too loose in the waist. So I exchanged for 32" and they fit just right. (Great exchange policy.) Nice quality denim, the reinforced fabric in knees and seat is pretty soft and not really noticeable although a bit warm on hot days. The knee pads do move around a bit in their pockets but partly I am just getting used to letting them settle in as the jeans get broken in. Pretty decent appearance, cuffs fit right around my boots, the waist is positioned well even while sitting on the bike, and I can even wear them around the office without anyone really noticing they are riding pants. Good Fit, Good Value, Sturdy Construction, Comfortable Feel = Good Buy!

Shrinks and durability very questionable
The legs shrunk so much that the knee protection became more of a thigh protection and the pants barely overlap with 11" boots. Strangely, the waist was ok. Both the denim and the Kevlar are EXTREMELY thin. The waist is cut low and is uncomfortable. All in all it is WAY over priced.

Great Pant
I have worn these jeans around 8 times.

Fit: As advertised. I wear a 34/32 jean, 5'10, 190ish lbs, athletic build, thick legs. The size 34 is spot on. Legs are long enough so they don't hike up in riding position. I wear them over SIDI Vertigo boots. No problem fitting over them.

Style: Look great on and off the bike.

Protection: Up until now I have been wearing Dainese Knee V E1 N Guards under a pair of Scorpion jeans. While I enjoyed the protection of the hard knee guards, on long rides they would get uncomfortable. The soft armor that comes with the A* jeans is much more comfortable, but I'm not certain they will be as protective in a fall, especially if you take a hit to the outside of your leg.

Comfort: Very comfortable, great air flow.

Currently wear Shift Torque riding jeans. They held up well in a couple of low sides, but I wanted riding jeans with more protection while still looking casual. I also like the straight leg versus the "bell bottom" Torque jeans, which flapped in the wind way too much.

Wanted a riding jean that was slim fit. These look nice but were not what I hoped for. I still wear them. Not to exited about the armor. Makes knees look funny

Need a 32 waist but the size chart shows this will come with a max 31.5 inseam. Need 32 to 33 inch inseam. Is this really the length? If so, is there enough material at the hem to let them out?
A shopper on Aug 25, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I ordered the 32" waist a few weeks back and I need a 31" inseam, so shrunk the jeans as much as I could the first day I got them. I just measured the inseam of them when they came out of the washing machine (so wet) and they were 32.5". I can't say what they were when I received them though.

In addition, the dye on the jeans are not set, so they do leak onto hands etc. I am following some internet wisdom and have soaked them in white vinegar overnight and washing/drying them.

Hope this helps.
